"We had some guests on last week and I think a lot of hospitals are doing this, they are offering families the chance to speak to their loved ones who can't respond because they're in comas.

"But she's been able to share music with him, to talk to him and just support him."

Charlotte Hawkins, who was also presenting the show, added: “It's so important, normally you'd be able to be there by your loved ones side.

"It's so hard for families not being able to be there, not being able to see their loved ones."
